Social Activities

There will be three organized social activities during the school (see schedule tab for precise times), open also to non-participants  and partly subsidized by the school. If you wish to participate, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page on or before 23/2/2020 and pay using a credit-card (speakers exempted). Due to the large number of participants, we might not be able to accommodate everybody (particularly to the excursion). Preference will be given to those who register earlier.

 

Welcome reception:
The reception will take place in the lounge on the 8th floor of Amado (the Math department) building, at 6:00pm on Monday 24/2, right after the short-talk session.
Wine, beer and cocktail food. Free for all registered participants. 

 

Excursion:
An afternoon guided tour (3-4 hours) of the ruins of Caesarea – the ancient maritime city on the coast of the Mediterranean. Preserved and/or reconstructed parts of the ancient city will be visited, with commentary given by an archaeologist from the Israeli antiquities authority.  The tour will end with a one hour glass blowing demonstration inside the crusader citadel in the old port.

A designated bus will leave right after the last lecture on Wednesday 26/2 (we will try to finish by 12:15pm; pick-up from the usual on-campus pick-up location). Expected return time 8:00pm with drop-offs both at the hotel and the guesthouse. Lunch and an afternoon snack (?) will provided. The cost is 50USD/person. 

 

Farewell banquet:
A farewell banquet at the Druze town of Daliyat al-Karmel
on the evening of Thursday 27/2. A full course Druze style dinner with wine. Vegetarian option available (for those who indicated this as their dietary preference on the registration form). Transportation from the Technion campus to the restaurant and back to the hotel and guesthouse will be provided. The bus will leave from the usual on-campus pick-up location on Thursday 6:00pm, right after the short-talk session.  The cost is 50USD per person.
